HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Even though the summer is winding down, Dr. Lauren Goode is still treating allergic rhinits.
Keep your windows closed and air conditioning on to keep the allergens outside.
An over-the-counter, once daily, non-drowsy allergy medications like Zyrtec and Claritin can help. You can also try using a nettie pot from the drug store for mild nasal congestion.
Keep in mind that OTC meds don't control symptoms.
